Wild animal park

One of the many things I love about living in LA is that, besides being a very family friendly and oriented city it also has lots of places to go with your little ones where entertainment meets knowledge.
After Disneyland which was such a fun and colorful experience, last Saturday we took our backpacks and put on our hats to land into another adventure: San Diego Wild Animal Park.
The idea behind it is that animals don't live behind bars but basically they provide for them bigger spaces and more freedom. For visitors, it is a neat experience too, as they get to see these animals more in their habitat. The park also provides a petting area where you can basically go in and become friends with the deers or get some honey and become a buddy with the parakeets.
It was very interesting to see Bryce's reaction. First time for him when he saw live animals (except the grand parents dog, of course) and a bunch of them and they were big and weird, too.:)
He was very, very amazed by the close encounters with the deer. Actually he loved to pet them. He also liked the parakeets and he was fascinated by their colors and feathers.
The other nice thing about this park was that they had a nice ride that would take you throughout the whole area and give you the chance to see some unbelievable animals and birds like the white and black rhino, Flamingo birds, pelicans, African vultures, giraffes, gazelles, big lions on top of abandoned cars, cheetah to name just a few.
All in all, if I would have to make a comparison between the two parks and what Bryce liked most, I can totally say that he just LOVED Disneyland there's just no doubt about it. I think that the Wild Animal Park is just a place that he will enjoy a lot when he will be a little bit older and will understand more about its habitants. :)
On the same note, Sunday, we went and visited the Griffith Observatory. What an unbelievable place and again such a great source of information and knowledge for when he is a little bit older. Beautiful sunset and you're just left with the feeling that we are so small in this Universe and we have so many things to learn throughout our lives.
